I have one more yummy pumpkin recipe for you that I think you are really going to enjoy.
These cookies are so delicious! They are perfect for a breakfast on the run! They are full of flavor and since they have a lot of fiber in them, they keep you full for a long time. I was a little worried about the baby-food that was included, but let me tell you….the end result is so yummy you won’t even care what is in it! The texture ends up more like a granola bar than a cookie, but either way they are worth making more than once.
- 2 Tablespoons Craisins
- 1/4 cup Fiber One Cereal
- 1/2 cup regular oats (not instant)
- 6 Tablespoons flour
- 1/4 cup Splenda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup baby pureed peaches
- 1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup egg beaters
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Chop the craisins into small pieces and set aside.
Grind the cereal in a blender or food processor until it is a bread-crumb like consistency.
In a mixing bowl, add the cereal, oats, flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, add peaches, pumpkin, and egg beaters. Mix well.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir until completely blended.
Slowly add the chopped craisins into the mixture, making sure they don’t stick together.
Spray a large baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon the batter out into four equal circles. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter out a little. Cook for 12 – 14 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.
While the cookies baked, I gave the pups their favorite treat of pure pumpkin. Pumpkin is actually good for dogs, because it regulates their digestion. If they have a slight upset tummy they get a few spoons of pumpkin for dinner a few nights in a row and they usually feel better!
After your cookies cool slightly, they are ready to eat! Save the extras in an airtight container in the fridge.
